DIY Stamps

*Disclaimer* This is not an original idea of mine. I have seen this all over the internet this just my own version of how to maker your own stamps.

Exacto Knife
V-shaped Line Cutter
Stamp Ink

Take a regular eraser and draw an image on it. Cut out around the image with one of your sharp tools. I like using the exacto knife for the straight edges and using the V-shaped cutter to carve out the rest of the eraser. You just need to cut out enough so that your image is the highest point. I had to do this about three times. It was harder than I thought cut around the edges of my image and keep them straight even with an easy image like the flag that I did. Once I was comfortable I made a skull and cross bones. I like how they both turned out.
